Taylor Hicks - Do I Make You Proud?

I got a Google alert today about Taylor Hicks single “Do I Make You proud?” The Mormon Home Evening blog has used Taylor’s song and a video at YouTube to dedicate a tribute to the men and women of the United States Armed Forces. I have always loved this video and am so glad that someone else realizes how touching the song and the video is to remind us of all the troops are doing and risking for us.

So after I went to this site I went to search and see how many copies have been sold thus far of “Do I Make You Proud?” I didn’t find any updated info but for those who don’t know in its first week of sales, Taylor’s hit sold 190,000 copies to lead the Hot 100 singles chart put out by Billboard. In addition, Taylor’s single sold 38,000 digital downloads, according to Nielsen Soundscan. The single, which includes a cover of the Doobie Brothers' "Takin' It to the Streets" as a b-side, also led the Pop 100 and Single Sales charts.

If anyone knows how many it has sold now please post that information here. Also I read at that the video which is the one I saw used at as had over 1 million views of this video of 'Do I Make You Proud' on YouTube. 1,037,404 to be. You can see the video at either site.
